Top 5 (super backlist arcs) Tuesday

Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads says this week is a freebie so we can do any prompt! Or make up our own! Here’s hers. I had no idea what I was going to do but an idea came to me because I dnfed two (backlist) arcs and then quickly sped through a third! So I wanted to talk about some super old arcs that I have to still read and review!


The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen (GR/SG) – Please, the way the SEQUEL came out LAST YEAR and I still… haven’t read the first book. I’ll get to it soon!! Well, soon-ish, I guess.

Furyborn by Claire Legrand (GR/SG) – So, I have actually read this, but just didn’t review it. And now it’s a whole trilogy! So, yay! No, actually, definitely no yay.

Beyond the Black Door by A.M. Strickland (GR/SG) – DB, you ask, wasn’t this published like 25 years ago? Yes, yes it was, and I’m absolutely shaming myself for not having read this earlier. Hopefully later this year?

The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood (GR/SG) – Please take me back to the days where I would’ve finished this maybe in like 2 days? Hey, it’s not even 500 pages, still doable! You know, whenever I get around to this.

Into the Crooked Place by Alexandra Cristo (GR/SG) – The sequel came out this year so it’s high time to pick it up! I do love these ensemble synopses. They’re so fun!


Quick and easy! Unlike my rate of currently reading books, I might add! πŸ˜‚ Do you have any backlist arcs you need to get to? Or if no arcs, then what about some older releases that you’ve been meaning to get to? Come and tell me!

  2. Not gonna lie, but I thought The Merciful Crow came out THIS YEAR rather than well… two years ago. 🀑 I have some from way back in 2016 that I uh… have started to get around to, but typically as the final format since I was able to find it on Scribd. I’m pretty sure there’s a few more from 2017 as well… πŸ˜…

    1. What is time even? πŸ˜‚ I’m struggling with one backlist arc now that I’m thinking I might need to switch to an audiobook since I’m doing well with those now – like I’ve managed to finish 4 audiobooks and am busy with 2 now but I haven’t picked up a physical book or even an ebook in… a while 😭

[…] Top 5 super backlist arcs – This was a freebie and I chose this promptThe Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen – LOOK AWAY, LOOK AWAYFuryborn by Claire Legrand – Uhm, I was waiting for it to be completed?Beyond the Black Door by A.M. Strickland – Once again, I blame publishing for not allowing us to BREATHEWe have another mention of The Unspoken Name so I will remain unspoken about this (I realise that probably did not make sense, but then again I feel it’s rare that I do πŸ˜†). Into the Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo – I thought this was a standalone but I just looked at the other post and it’s a duology. […]
